Rallying for Galway Hospice

On Saturday September 11th 2010, six weeks of hard work culminated in the presentation of a cheque for €15,000 to Galway Hospice. The “Rallying for Galway Hospice Team”, led by John Spain and Jarlath Conneely, raised funds through a bucket collection, a raffle and generous sponsorship from a number of local business people in the Loughrea and Galway areas.  John and Jarlath funded the running costs of the Toyota Celica in the 2010 Galway Summer Rally, so that all sponsorship raised could go directly to the Hospice. From an idea that began with a target of raising €3,500, the final total has far exceeded expectations.  Thanks to eveyone involved in Motorsport in Galway for supporting this very successful venture.  In the photograph: (L-R) Jarlath Conneely, Collette Dodd (Galway Hospice), John Spain and Pat Spain.  (Photo courtesy of Joe Lane).
